 MINOS Experiment and NuMI Beam Home Page
The NuMI Beamline is a facility at Fermilab, near Chicago, which uses protons from the Main Injector accelerator to produce an intense beam of neutrinos which are utilized by the MINOS Experiment; the neutrino beam is directed along a line connecting the two endpoints of the experiment.
The MINOS Experiment is a long-baseline neutrino experiment designed to observe the phenomena of neutrino oscillations, an effect which is related to neutrino mass.
MINOS uses two detectors, one located at Fermilab, at the source of the neutrinos, and the other located 450 miles away, in northern Minnesota, at the Soudan Underground Mine State Park in Tower-Soudan.

For Minos used him as guardian of the law in the city, and Talos as the same for the rest of Crete.

Minos is a solver based on MINOS versions 5.51 that can be used either "stand-alone" or with AMPL's -ob and -og options to solve linear and nonlinear problems expressed in AMPL.
The argument -AMPL causes minos to emit a one-line banner; when $solver has its default value (minos), AMPL's solve command invokes minos stub -AMPL If a stub is present, minos tries to write the computed solution to stub.sol unless the -s option was specified.
Minos determines how much scratch storage it will need from the stub.nl or the SPECS file and obtains it from malloc.
